Mine would be the USO. Yours?
US Open for me too.
Wimbledon because I banked on Murray. I felt like skipping Roland Garros gave him considerable advantage
Being British, nothing beats Wimbledon.
I like that he actually celebrated his Wimbledon win rather than look for his watch. Or is that why he turned back and went to Judy?
I'd honestly say Olympics. I respect Fed to death and to see him get manhandled by Andy was so exciting (I was in firm Olympic mode).
Wimbledon 13 comes next. I sensed it was Andy's time but didn't even believe it when he had 3 championship points. But he got it.
The USO was incredibly exciting but not to take anything away it was a weird *** match, both players and wind conditions.
But they are all Murray wins. I'm glad he got Wimbledon. But I'd put Olympics in front of it in terms of "sweetness"
Murray is a 2x slam winner and will win more. 2004-2016ish could be the pinnacle of men's tennis
Andy is a little late to the "big 4" party, but he has arrived in a big way.
He is far more settled and composed than I've ever seen him.
Look for more big things to come over the next 5 years.
Wimbledon. Absolutely no contest.
But I don't think you get SW19 without USO.
You're slating him in other topics:shock:
The Last one!
Wimbledon because somebody was stupid enough to bet with me that Murray would NEVER win Wimbledon!
It was a long time ago & the odds were good.
I bet you are still floating...
This Wimbledon because of the immense pressure and the masterful way in which he played.
Close one but uso shades it
Wimbledon. Not even a debate. Next.
I had to vote Wimbledon. Hey, I am British after all! :wink:
Wimbledon confirmed that Murray was not going to be a one-Slam wonder and had it in him to win more. It is still the most prestigious of the 4 Slams (being the first of them, history, tradition etc.). And it finally silenced the annual "When will there be another British male champion at Wimbledon?" questioning from the media and public!
But it is a very close thing. The US Open will always have a special place for us Murray fans as the scene of his maiden Grand Slam triumph. It is the place where he was finally able to shift the "Can he ever win a Slam?" monkey off his back once and for all. It gave him the confidence he needed to go on and win more. It confirmed him as being able to compete successfully with the best on the biggest stages.
They are both going to linger long as particularly sugary memories for me in the long and often arduous path of being a Murray fan!
Gosh, just thinking about that USO win makes me feel funny.
Wimby. It was magical.
Wimbledon, because it was the end of one almighty bag of hurt for Britain and Andy Murray, but it's also nice to remember that it probably brought closure to Lendl as well.
The US Open win felt like more like a relief.
Wimbledon. This is the one every brit wanted him to finally manage - even more so after the painful loss to fed last year after getting to the finals.
I honestly doubt most of the public here would even know he won the USO.
Its quite curious. Both wins meant a big monkey off of his back. One to end his slams finals drought and the other to end the the famous 77 number. There's no excuse to Andy now, its time to start winning, this big pression is not there anymore.
EXACTLY!!!! And being cheered/adored by your home fans has to make it even better.
I'm not British so I don't have that going for me :neutral:. For me, seeing him win his first major was great to see, and it was nice to see him prove all his doubters wrong. I also enjoyed seeing every thread from 08/09/10/11 on Murray not being able to win a major revived
Part of it is the memory. The USO I was watching crappy web stream at 2am due to time difference and lack of coverage here while wimbledon I was sitting in my sunny lounge with a beer watching it on a big HD tv.
